Aloha and Happy Friday,
I’m trying to wrap my head around an error my University accessibility checker is giving me for a recent GP/GB pro build.
“Text not included in an ARIA landmark”
Hard to tell if I’m doing something wrong (like hooking elements into the wrong places, or not adding an aria-label to my Site Footer element) … or if maybe it’s more of a theme-related issue outside my control?
Any advice on where I should start to remediate this issue?
The site has otherwise sailed through the checker … and all dings, since fixed, were caused by me 🙂
Much thanks for any insight you can offer on ‘ARIA landmarks’

According to the checker (Siteimprove), the biggest culprit is the custom Site Footer, which is a:
Block Element, Element type >> Site Footer
The other culprit is Titles falling outside the ‘Main’ landmark … I’m working on that one.

Sure am …
GP Premium 2.1.2
GB Pro 1.2.0
I found a Chrome extension that outlines the landmarks (http://matatk.agrip.org.uk/landmarks/)
The Nav/Header gets wrapped, and so does the content.
It’s the Site Footer element that seems to be un-wrapped by a landmark.

If you edit your Block Element Footer, and select the parent Container Block, in its sidebar settings you can select the Element Tag name:
What happens if you set that to
